SimProj: A Tool for the Calculation of Rear-Projection Mirroring

The SimProj Project provides a Processing-based (and therefore Java-based) application that provides a GUI for the simulated calculation of a video projection setup. SimProj allows to add and manipulate virtual projectors, mirrors and projection planes in order to show how the projection is mirrored and which sizes, angles and positions the setup components require. SimProj can be configured to comfortably show all necessary measures that can be ‘easily’ (everyone who has ever built a rear-projection setup knows what ‘easily’ means in that context) transferred to the hardware setup.

The TwinTable – A Multi-Touch Tabletop System for Tangible Interaction

The TwinTable is a multi-touch tabletop system that Simon Lehmann and I have built at the RheinMain University. After my previous table, the Virttable, we wanted to go for something bigger and with Full HD. Furthermore, our goal was a table that could be used in a living environment. Therefore, we have chosen a height of 50 cm, which is roughly the same height as a coffee table. This allows us to integrate the TwinTable into our laboratory’s lounge suite.

A Rear-Projection Mirror Fixture System for Multi-Touch Tabletops

Our multi-touch tabletop system TwinTable employs a rear-projected display with a diameter of approx. 46″. For the projection, we use an Acer H7350D DLP projector with FullHD resolution. In order to project the image correctly, we had to design a rear-projection mirror fixture system employing three mirrors.

The Multi-Touch Table Virttable [Update]

The second multi-touch table, that I have built is called The Virttable, which stands for Versatile Illumination Research Touch Table.

CAD Drawing of the Virttable

This table is the property of the department for Design, Computer Science and Media (DCSM) of the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences, which provided me with the money for the components of the Virttable. (Actually, we had student fees for a short time in Hessen/Germany. From a part of these student fees the Virttable has been built. Thank you, dear students!!! There’s no cent of public money in the Virttable.) Amongst others those parts include:

The computer that I have used in the Virttable is my Mac Mini.
